Sandy Bliven, Lois Antoch and other parishioners at Our Lady of Victory Roman Catholic Church in Ashaway were so moved by the beauty of the church this Easter season, they asked Bill Aiello to send in these photos which include Rev. Michael "Father Mike" Colello, the pastor of both Our Lady of Victory and St. Vincent de Paul Church in Bradford, celebrating the Easter Vigil Mass on Holy Saturday with Rev. Msgr. William J. McCaffrey and Deacon Costa Adamopoulos.

The churches, according to their updated website, offer "Something More" to seekers. "We need to 'yell from the rooftop that Our Lady of Victory and St. Vincent de Paul are different, that we openly welcome everyone without judgment," writes Father Mike. "Like Pope Francis, 'Who are we to judge?' So, let’s search out those fallen away souls and ask, 'Are you looking for something more in life?' If so, give us a try.”
